We are thrilled to have our star on the rise, Clare R, as our May Model of the Month. From being featured in Seventeen Magazine to Eloquii – Clare does it all! Continue reading to learn more about Clare, what inspires her, and her dream clients!
1. Where you are from?
A tiny beach town in FL called Vero Beach.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
Dance! I grew up doing competitive dance and studied musical theatre in college while dancing professionally in Miami. I’m fully addicted to face masks (it’s a study, hobby, and special skill!) as well as spending time researching and furthering all things body positive.
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
I love working with my Full Beauty Brands team! They’re so fun to work with. It’s never boring. I also love getting to see what’s coming up for Eloquii. Their clothes are truly amazing!
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
A dream client would be Chromat or 11honore. They have such amazing visions. Chromat is the most responsible and progressive brand – it would be amazing to be a part of that. But in general I want to be a part of normalizing plus bodies in the mainstream narrative through commercial, acting, print, or fit!
5. Career highlights?
My first big print feature was 17 Magazine. It was an all sizes swim shoot and it was a blast. I couldn’t believe my “full tummy” fit was a full page in print in a magazine!
6. How did you get into modeling ?
I have an acting background so I was submitting for a wide range of jobs through breakdown services, and an overwhelming amount of the response was for “curvy girls needed” in print/commercials (this was in 2012 when the industry was a little more niche). Then, one of the production team members from my 17 shoot suggested I look into agencies specifically for modeling.
